    A10 Tournament Coronavirus?

    Haven't seen anything yet. They are doing mostly open seating to help people spread out. Richmond has canceled all of their pre-game alumni events.

    Keeping an eye on things after the latest set of games...not a whole lot of movement among the bubble teams with the obvious exception of Duquesne. Rhode Island drifting up a few spots when every single one counts immensely, while Richmond wasn't hurt by the loss to Dayton other than missing a...

    Several SOS results went their way last night..McNeese got a nice bump with a road win over a higher rated Abilene Christian, CSUN and Radford also won. Hampton lost, but that didn't hurt much. A Wisconsin win last night would have been really nice to have.

    Can we just make this a free throw shooting contest?

    Richmond Spiders 2019-20 Season Thread

    Up to 53 in the NET. Happy with how things are going, but not much margin for error here in A-10 play. Probably need to go 13-5 in A-10 plus a win in the tourney to have a good shot at an at-large. Wisconsin win looking really good, but really need to get at least one against Dayton/VCU to...

    Richmond vs Rhode Island 1/5

    I keep cringing at UR’s offensive possessions, and yet they’re up double digits. Tough defense on both sides. Gilyard sat much of the first half with two fouls, so happy to see Spiders were still able to take care of the ball with him out.

    Atlantic 10 Non-Conference Grades: Richmond Spiders

    Big picture, it looks like a solid OOC performance, but the way the Spiders ended it makes me nervous...escaping a bad ODU team thanks to a Golden three nearly at the buzzer, losing handily to Radford, and then never really being able to stay within striking distance of Alabama.

    Nope, the team sheets show Duquesne's home games counting as home games. They have four neutral games on their team sheet...the three in the Bahamas and Radford in Akron. Several more neutrals coming up for them too...Austin Peay and UAB in St. Pete and Marshall in Cleveland...

    Hypothetical Additions to the Atlantic 10

    Certainly don't see Buffalo moving to a non-football conference. If anything, they'll probably be trying to sell themselves as a replacement for UConn in the AAC, but lots of competition for that spot.

    Atlantic 10 Player of the Year Race: Who’s in the lead, and who’s in the hunt?

    Just going to drop Gilyard's stat line from today in here... 15 points on 6-of-8 from the field (including 3-of-5 from three), eight boards, seven assists, six steals, zero turnovers, and even a block. He just entered Richmond's all-time top ten for assists (he'll pass Ced Lindsay and ShawnDre'...

    Atlantic 10 Player of the Year Race: Who’s in the lead, and who’s in the hunt?

    Love Blake, but would not choose him over Gilly if you were looking for a POY candidate from the Spiders. Gilly scoring almost nearly as much as Blake on much better shooting (58% overall, 52% from three - 5th in the country), averaging over 6 assists, 11th in the nation in A-to-TO, and leading...

    At least 50 guys have already announced they're transferring during the season. If they transfer now, they can be eligible for second semester of 2020-21 at a minimum. But yes, surprised he didn't transfer this past spring/summer. It was clear he was going to have trouble cracking the lineup...

    Verbinskis is transferring. He's struggled with injuries throughout his career and never been able to get on the floor. Has seen a handful of minutes of mop-up time so far this year and is 3-for-3 from three, but I'm sure he's seen the writing on the wall with where he is in the pecking order...
